Alicia Keys Songs in A Minor Album Cover

Editor Pick: Alicia Keys “Jane Doe” featuring Kandi (Written by Kandi)


Besides being a very accomplished singer as part of the group Xscape and also as a solo artist, Kandi is a very talented writer. In fact, she was the first African-American woman in history to win the ASCAP “Songwriter of the Year” award for writing “No Scrubs” for TLC and “Bills, Bills, Bills” for Destiny’s Child. Here is a gem she wrote and contributed vocals to for Alicia Keys’ debut album “Songs in A Minor” from 2001.

    Nice one! Though the most memorable track on that album for me was "Girlfriend", which also featured Kandi, was probably also written by her too. Not too sure though. Check it out!
